"love, family, tradition"..

Photo Credit: Sincerely Yours Paper

Want to make your wedding reception feel more intimate and personal? Want your guests to feel the day's love from the moment they arrive? Well, what can be more inviting than a family wedding photo display for all to enjoy?

This trend is definitely an oldie but a goodie. Collect wedding photos of your parents, grand parents, and even great-grandparents, then, create a "wall of love". Guests will definitely pause a moment or two to take in the memories. Not to mention, it's great way to see the evolution of weddings (especially fashion) over the decades!

Your photo wall can be displayed anywhere in your reception but we love the idea of displaying it at the entrance. It's a perfect place for your guests to stop and enjoy the pictures while looking through the seating chart or signing the "guest book".

There are many ways to display your photo wall from the creative to the elegant and the whimsical. Here are some examples to help you on your way...
